Radishes

My first (and in all likeliehood only) Latvian balcony radish crop. Although the vegetables were a bit smaller than I'm used to they tasted a lot better than the ones you get by the kilo in supermarkets. I ate them all in one meal, chopped up into an onion, cucumber and aubergine salad served with boiled rice and a soy sauce dressing.

size does not always matter... they look lecker and while the aubergine part is something I can't quite imagine, the soy sauce dressing sounds more interesting than the usual vinaigrette I use. Might try that and add some bean sprouts..
Did you use the greens too? The give an extra "zing" I've found...

Trust me, you'd be able to imagine aubergine if it was half price in the local supermarket.
You were right about the greens, though that zing might have been the effect of prickles on the underside of my gob.

When I was a kid I used to love eating allotment grown radishes and scallions that had been dipped in salt... I really should go and get my blood pressure checked.
